    Paul and Arthur’s song “Sound of Silence” somehow comes to mind.

    That is payback for all those front door attacks when Calvin comes home from school.

    If you don’t count the buzzing of snowmobiles…do they still have those? They marred the peace of snow days in my hometown in the 70s.

    You steer it by leaning, Calvin. That’s how we used to avoid the mastodons back when I was a kid.

    Brian recently reminded me of the time when Calvin left Hobbes in the woods and had to go looking for him before Mom sent Calvin to bed and went looking for Hobbes with Dad. Today’s strip makes me wonder whether Calvin will go to fetch Hobbes back or wait for Hobbes to come to him in the hope that Hobbes will have calmed down.

    I know that Brian refuses to accept that Hobbes isn’t part of Calvin’s imagination and has even told me that Bill Watterson was wrong when he said, “I suspect he’s more real than any kid could make up.” Despite some people agreeing with Brian, I still agree with Watterson.

    I can’t remember the last time I saw a toboggan, let alone one bearing a screaming tiger.

    Hobbes was imagining what it would have been like without any people around. That would have included Calvin.

    ’Twas a few days before Christmas, when all through the meaddow, not a creature was stirring, not even a tiger.

    But then Calvin had other plans.

    Wow! Imagine what it would be like if Calvin was President. Stirring up bee’s nests… everyone watching their p’s and q’s… not knowing what to expect next… every day being interesting… fun… full of wonder, but challenging… Oh, wait! We’ve already had that.

    When I was a lad, they came out with the ‘’Snow Saucer’’.

    An Aluminum disc with two canvas handles and absolutely no way to control direction, except to roll over and get a facefull of snow. Tons-o-fun!

    This one reminds me of my favorite “Cow & Boy” strip, where his father ends up going down the hill, and I can just imagine a “Goofy Yell” right there at the end… ☺

    Calvin is wrong. You steer a toboggan by dragging one foot or the other in the snow.

    It’s highly unlikely, but can Calvin complete a single thought sans utilizing the first-person-singular pronoun?

    Hobbes will need to claw back to the hill and also to his senses for not gauging Calvin’s ulterior moves.
